Hives or urticaria is the skin condition characterized by red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in various shapes and sizes. They can be round or occur in large patches on anywhere on the body, mainly on the arms, the legs and the trunk.
Allergic reactions are said to be the main causes of hives; however, several non-allergic causes can trigger hives. Hives are of two types, acute (Short term lasting for six weeks or less) and chronic (long term hives lasting for more than 6 weeks).
